Last Mothers Day, all I hoped & prayed for was to bring 4 healthy babies into this world to join their big sister Jenna.

One year later, Praise Jesus, I have five healthy and thriving children. Thank you Lord!!!

In the daily grind of life, I can get so bogged down with things I feel I need to do: clean up messes, change diapers, do laundry, make meals, prepare bottles, kiss boo-boo's, wash dishes, vacuum floors, feed family... that I need to often force myself to stop, lift my eyes to Heaven, and thank God so much for these "daily chores"...
... because these are what Distinctly make me what I am SOOOOO thankful to be today: a Mommy.
I am so richly blessed beyond words.
A Happy Mother I am. Whether you are a mother or not, please celebrate the moms you know in your life. It will put a smile on their faces!
Mom, I love and appreciate you more than words can say! Happy Mothers Day to the woman who taught me what it looks like to trust in & lean on God. You taught me what it looks like to shine love on your family and care for them unconditionally no matter what the circumstances. I was TERRIBLE my teen years. And you still loved me so much. Because of you, I can pour that faith & love into the next generation. Thank you mom, so much. I love you.
